Launceston Human Library Visit – February 16, 2019

posted in: This Week

This Saturday we welcome back Tamar Artisan Smallgoods with their dry cured bacon smoked with fruit tree logs and infused with flavours such as chilli, maple and garlic.  Avocado Moon also returns with her Kombucha along with Village Olive Grove, the Tasmanian Butter Co, Lily Farm, Della Valle and Wanderlust

The Launceston Human Library is a volunteer organisation that aims to counteract prejudice by enabling people to meet and chat with people they would not normally encounter. This Saturday there will be the opportunity to meet some of their Human Books in short one on one conversations where they share a wide range of life experiences. Please bowl right up and talk to these Books – they are real people waiting to get into conversation and share their stories!
